    Re: Obama to ask for increase to debt ceiling in a 'matter of days'

    Raising the debt ceiling now was a foregone conclusion. Whether it was the GOP blowing big bucks while they had Congress and the WH, or what the Dems have done since. It was a joint effort creating this mess.

    But what is for certain is that if Obama is reelected, it won't get better. That pusilanimous liberal pipsqueak is the biggest disaster ever in the WH. He has to go, and we need a Congress dominated by better folks than we have had lately.

    It's going to get better no matter who is elected, unless it's a lunatic who starts another idiotic war. In fact it's already getting better. The deificit was lower last year than the year before, and it's going to be lower this year than it was last year.

    It is getting worse. We are on the brink of war...again, and our spending doesn't even make sense. There is no plan that is being enacted in order to save ourselves financially. And for that matter, most of the world.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    We're not on the brink of war. Stop watching the Republican debates. They'll give you nightmares.

    While I do not like the above quote, it is also my understanding that BO merely needs ask.

    That Obama is not as atrocious this year as last is not the stuff of celebration. He owns the three highest deficits ever, which makes him 3 for 3. After this year, he will own the four highest ever. If reelected, he will own the eight highest ever. His own projections, which are too "pie in the sky" , already project such.

    This is like taking a crap in a field of daisies, and having someone say "yeah, but if you use your imagination, it don't stink".

    Most presidents own the highest deficits ever when they're in office. Bush did, Reagan did, etc.

    No. Not for every year they do not. And not at twice the next closest.

    Can anyone here link me to the post by a DP lib actually admitting that Obama sucks ?
